About this Item

Small folio. Original publisher's light green wrappers printed in dark green. Piano: [i] (title), [ii] (contents and list of orchestral instruments), 1f. (dedication: "Dem Andenken eines Engels"), 5-55, [i] (blank) pp.; Violin: 15, [i] (blank) pp.Additional dedication printed to head of title: "Für Louis Krasner". Printed note "Made in Germany" to foot of title and to lower right corner of final page of music of piano reduction: "Druck der Waldheim-Eberle A.G."Publisher's catalogue "Werke von Alban Berg" dated "XI. 1938" with prices in Mark, to verso of lower wrapper.Wrappers partially detached. Slightly worn; upper outer corner dampstained throughout; occasional creases and small tears. First Edition, first issue of this arrangement. According to Universal Edition, there was no earlier issue. Douglas Jarman's claim in the critical report to the full score of the work, within the complete edition of Berg's works, that the arrangement was first published in 1936 is unsubstantiated; only the full score was published in that year. It is notable that Berg's music was still published and advertised in post-Anschluss Greater Germany.The arrangement, not credited in the edition, is by the Austrian pianist Rita Kurzmann (née Pollak, 1900-1942). She premiered it with violinist Louis Krasner (1903-1995), who had commissioned the concerto. Kurzmann was engaged in the workers' music movement and emigrated to Argentina in 1936.The double dedication-to Krasner and the "memory of an angel"-is noteworthy. The "angel" is Manon Gropius (1916-1935), daughter of Alma Mahler-Gropius (1879-1964) and Walter Gropius (1883-1969), whose early death from poliomyelitis shocked Vienna.
